An Amber Alert has been issued for two children who were abducted in upstate New York Monday night.

Shekeria Cash, 3, and Dimitri Cash Jr., 5, were kidnapped from a foster home in Greece around 8:40 p.m. and are believed to be in danger, WHAM-TV reported.

The siblings had been living in the foster home for the past two years. New York State Police and local authorities are looking for two suspects they say wore black ski masks during the abduction.

A woman in the foster home told police she saw two men breaking into the home through the front window. The men tied her up and two other foster kids with duct tape before heading upstairs and taking Shekeria and Dimitri, WHAM reported citing the Greece Police Department.

The suspects then fled in a stolen van with the children, police said.

Cops are looking to talk with the kids’ father, Dimitri Cash, who was arrested last January for trying to take one of the children from school, according to the outlet.

Monday, March 1st 2021

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman who investigators say abandoned three young children in three different areas of town on Monday.

The sheriff's office initially took a call at round 5 a.m. from someone who said a woman in a white 2018 Chevy Equinox just abandoned an 8-year-old child at a gas station on Okeechobee Boulevard near Drexel Road.

Four hours later, the sheriff's office said West Palm Beach Police took another call that a woman abandoned a 3-year-old child at a Publix store on S. Rosemary Avenue in West Palm Beach.

Fifteen minutes later, the sheriff's office said West Palm Beach Police said someone spotted the woman's car at the corner of North Ocean Boulevard and Sunrise in Palm Beach.

Warren 'rapper mom' arrested celebrating her birthday
Police found 26 shell casings. Myatt said she was celebrating her 40th birthday.

March 12th, 9:55 AM EST


A Warren woman already on probation for leaving her kids home alone so she could pursue a “rap career”, spent the morning after her birthday in jail.:D

Lashay Myatt is accused of firing as many as 26 shots in a Warren neighborhood, with some of those shots striking a home.

Police say they found twenty-six .40 caliber shell casings outside a Second Street home Thursday night. There were several bullet holes in one home where a resident claimed that one of the shots entered the house just over his head.

Officers pulled over Myatt’s Dodge Durango at Tod Avenue and Oak Street, saying they found a .40 caliber gun under the driver’s seat and an empty magazine on the car seat.

Police say they also found a scale with white residue in Myatt’s purse.

According to the police report, Myatt admitted firing shots into the air to celebrate her 40th birthday. She told police she had been drinking tequila and was drunk, but refused to undergo a field sobriety test.

Myatt was booked into the county jail on charges of driving under the influence and discharging weapons into a habitation. Since Myatt is prohibited from having a firearm because of a previous drug conviction, she was also charged with having a weapon under a disability.

At the time of her arrest on Thursday, Myatt was on probation stemming from an October conviction for child endangering.

This past September, Myatt was arrested for leaving her four children, ages 4 to 12, home alone at 1 am.

The oldest boy told officers that his mother is pursuing a “rap career” and leaves the children at home for periods of up to 24 hours.

The 12-year-old said that he cooks meals and makes sure his younger brothers and sister complete their online schooling. He said he tried to call his mom to ask her to come home and she hung up.

Myatt was given a 180-day suspended jail sentence but was placed on probation for three years.

Bond for Myatt was set at $50,000 during her arraignment on Friday.

Arrest Report: Mother allegedly left her 3 children unattended, duct taped room shut


Updated: Mar 31, 2021 / 12:11 AM PDT

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A mother is accused of leaving her three children unattended and duct taping the room they were in shut, according to an arrest report obtained by 8 News Now. Tierami Beverly faces three charges of felony child abuse or neglect.

Around 1:56 p.m. on Jan. 26, a Metro officer responded to the 8400 block of West Charleston in response to a report of three juveniles left unattended in an apartment, with the bedroom door duct taped shut.

According to the report, the officer met with a complex maintenance worker who said he’d received a call from another unit, reporting a leak coming from the apartment above. When the worker knocked on the apartment in question, no one answered. Due to the issue coming from that unit, he entered, working to determine the source of the leak.

The worker told police when he walked inside, he heard the children locked in the bedroom and noticed the master, which had an attached bathroom, was duct taped shut. The report describes the black tape stretching all the way across the door handle, keeping it from being opened from the inside.

Police say the worker took photos of the tape before entering. Upon opening the door, he discovered three unattended children inside the room, with the bathtub overflowing.:rolleyes:

The property manager contacted the unit’s tenant, identified as Beverly. She reportedly told the manager she was at the store and would return soon.

According to the report, the worker said a 1-year-old child was sleeping on the wet floor and that it took them “multiple minutes” to wake the toddler.

Philadelphia Community Members Continue Search For Missing 10-Year-Old Qadr Williamson​

By Alecia ReidNovember 13, 2021 at 7:56 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The search continues for missing 10-year-old Qadr Williamson. Community members went looking for clues Saturday, convinced someone saw something when the child went missing along a busy Lincoln Drive.
Three weeks after Qadr went missing, there’s still no word on what could’ve happened to the 10-year-old.
“All I really want is for her to come home,” Musa Bey, Qadr’s godfather, said.
It was Oct. 21, a Thursday morning at Glen Echo Road and Lincoln Drive, about a block from her home, where police say her foster mother last saw her.
“Her last sighting supposedly was her coming to this particular corner waiting for a bus that she never got on,” Carl Jones, a neighbor, said.
The FBI has officially joined the search, and the community has come together to pound the pavement as they continue to search for Qadr.
“To be going to school at 7:45 in the morning, that means that someone had to see something somewhere,” neighbor Lavinia Davis said. “People are going to work, people are going to school, there’s businesses around here, so we hope that someone does the right thing and even if you don’t know much, please share the information.”
Volunteers spent much of Saturday afternoon posting and handing out flyers and tying ribbons in her favorite color, purple.
“Even at 10 years old, she still was believing in fairytales and princess,” Bey said. “She’s a smart kid. She loves science.”
The group walked the route from the bus stop to Qadr’s school with a mission.
“We’re going to knock on some doors, we’re going to some businesses and just to see if somebody has seen her,” Jones said. “If anybody may have had some video of that particular day and that particular time.”
Qadr is 5-foot-5, 125 pounds with locs in her hair. She was wearing black pants, a black shirt, a blue hoodie and black sneakers the day she went missing.
“Just know that we are going to continue to look for you,” Davis said. “We will never stop looking for you.”
